No need for police!
Great plot, great narrator, but ruined, for me, by the far fetched notion that the police are incompetent; even failing to properly investigate one of the tragic events bestowed on this family, and the parents having to step in and save the day on the second major event.
Shame. This book had so much potential. It almost felt like the author didn't know what to do with the parents during the police investigations, so she had to put them front and centre, and leading the investigation themselves.

Captivating and intriguing - loved it
I listened to The Stolen Child on audiobook and thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. Set in Yorkshire it was particularly interesting as i listened to it in my car on my commute to Bradford. Even made the M62 enjoyable if there is such a thing. The plot twists and turn right from the very start and the characters were intriguing. Even the inevitable question of who did it wasn't obvious until the end so it kept you on your toes. This is the first book by this author and I hope to read more.
